The Slovak new car market edges up 0.7% year-on-year in September to 7.177 registrations, leading to a year-to-date volume up 10.1% to 71.335.

This puts the Octavia 63 sales above the Fabia after nine months, and if it maintains itself in the pole position until the end of the year it would be the first time since 2014 that the Octavia wins the annual ranking in Slovakia. The Skoda Rapid remains in third place in both September (-13%) and YTD (+4%) while the VW Golf (+24%) climbs up to #4 ahead of the Kia Cee’d (-15%) and Hyundai i30 (+12%).

The Slovak new car market is down a tiny 0.1% year-on-year in January, but with more woking days than in January 2016 this actually translates into quite a significant decline. The Skoda Octavia reclaims the Top spot off its little sister the Skoda Fabia for the month at 414 units vs 356, with the Rapid rounding up a podium 100% Skoda. The Opel Astra is the best-selling non-Skoda in January at #4 ahead of the Kia Cee’d. Excellent performance of the Skoda Superb up 46% to #6, but none better than the VW Polo up 115% to #8. Already out of fashion (?), the Suzuki Vitara (-33%) and Hyundai Tucson (-25%) round up a Top 10 composed at 60% of Volkswagen Group nameplates.
